Iwobi, Ndidi, Iheanacho, Olanrewaju Set For Togo Friendly; Osimhen Out

Wolfsburg striker Victor Osimhen will not be one of the 19 players to take part in Thursday’s Super Eagles friendly against Togo, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

The 18-year-old forward, who was involved on Monday night as Wolfsburg avoided relegation, is yet to arrive in the Nigeria camp in Paris and has been left out of the squad named for the friendly.

Austrian Wein striker Kayode Olanrewaju, Henry Onyekuru and Stephen Odey are the three strikers listed for the game.

“In camp for Togo frieddly: Ezenwa, Alampasu, Ebuehi, Abdullahi, Echiejile, Olatunbosun, Ekong, Awaziem, Agbo, Agu, Etebo, Alhassan,” the Super Eagles tweeted on Tuesday via their verified handle.

“Iwobi, Musa, Olanrewaju, Onyekuru, Ndidi, Odey, Iheanacho. These players will prosecute the friendly vs Togo.”

Meanwhile, Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho, who scored a late equaliser for Nigeria in the 1-1 draw against Corsica last week, returned to the Eagles camp on Tuesday after taking two days off amid reports linking him with a move to West Ham.

“@67Kelechi Iheanacho, who left our Paris camp last Saturday to clear up some personal matters, has since rejoined the team,” the Super Eagles tweeted on Tuesday.

Osimhen is yet to make an official appearance for the Super Eagles since he was called up by Gernot Rohr last year.
